Minneapolis indie-rock band, Sigcell, returns with Pile of Ghosts, an EP far removed from their deeply introspective debut record, The Poet. Comparatively, Pile of Ghosts, is as sparse as The Poet was lush. Trading layers of electronics for acoustic guitars, rich vocal harmonies and a hint of old west aesthetic, Pile of Ghosts evokes characters reckoning with a future they’re not ready for.
Sigcell has been around in one form or another since 2001 with several different band members joining, leaving and returning over the years.
Their first record, The Poet, was released in 2005. Since that time, the band has floated in and out of the public eye and stage with band members spending time pursuing other projects. In 2015, original founding members, Peter Wannemacher (Vocals/Guitar) and Andrew Munsch (Guitar) were joined by Sam Keenan (Bass) and Ben Stein (Drums).
